Bloggers
Invited Foodies

It was a great weekend to start off, I set myself indulging delicious middle eastern cuisine at Al-Amar with a group of foodies. It was the Al-Amar’s Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) Menu that caught our attention and it was something truly different than the usual. A scrumptious evening of Lebanese fine dining.

The Cold Mezze Palette

The menu festival at Al-Amar first introduce their cold mezze palette consist of Pink Hommos, Moustabbal with Avocado and Rocket Beetroot Salad. The Pink Hommos was truly interesting and too beautiful to look at. I like the colour and the taste was refreshing too, having it over my hand peeled pieces of warm pita bread was absolutely amazing delicious. It was perfectly done with mashed chick peas, sesame seed paste and the flavour was accelerated with a touch of special spices, lemon juice and olive oil. To be truthful, I don’t mind having another serving of this awesome snack. It was truly addictive! :)

I found yet another interesting snack that I had before but with an interesting twist. I love moutabbal but finding mine with added mashed avocado was intriguing. Here this dish was prepared with mashed grilled eggplant with added sesame sees paste and flavoured with lime juice, fresh smashed avocado, garlic and olive oil. Yet it went very well with warm serving of pita bread.

The Rocket Beetroot served complimented both of the dips marvellously as it was really refreshing with mild sweetness and just simple light to have. The whole plate was so well incoperated and the cross tasting of the dishes on the plate was absolutely well calculated. I like it.
